En­duro rac­ing: “I know the word seems overused, but it re­ally re­flects the type of rid­ing that most of us get to do in Santa Cruz, even if we aren’t rac­ing. There are more and more great bikes and equip­ment that are per­fectly suited for the type of all-moun­tain rid­ing that we get to en­joy here ev­ery day.” Bike pack­ing or bike overnights: “We see a lot of en­ergy around com­bin­ing bik­ing and camp­ing or off-road ad­ven­tures. There are tons of ‘gravel grinder’ bikes (ba­si­cally road bikes that can take you off road) and gear to ac­com­mo­date pack­ing your own gear for a self-sup­ported trip.” Com­mut­ing: “As more and more cities build bike-friendly in­fra­struc­tures, it is mak­ing com­mut­ing by bike more ac­ces­si­ble for more peo­ple. So, there is a lot of great prod­uct to sup­port this — such as fan­tas­tic bags and cross­over ap­parel that can live on and off the bike.”
